Yesterday afternoon was spent in the pool and what a good time we had. Piano Man and Desert Princess talked Grandpa into a water game called "Sharks and Minnows". I was designated the Shark, and the object was for the shark to catch the minnows. Now, the pool was the largest I had ever seen, for me it seemed to be an ocean, because I was one exhausted shark by the end of the afternoon. In the meantime, Little Baby Iris, only 18 months was absolutely enjoying the water as one can see. And wow did Piano Man like the those giant water canons.....shot me down at least twice!!!! For tomorrow.....we will be on to Bocce Ball, Croquet, Tennis, Frisbee, and perhaps Horseshoes. Sounds like the old Shark can have a rest!!
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
